Should you wash your hair everyday?

Shampooing the hair isn’t necessary for most people’s health. The majority of visible dirt and debris can be removed by simply rinsing the hair with water a few times a week. 

The frequency with which you wash your hair is a cosmetic choice based on personal preference.  Hair that is extremely dry does not need to be washed every day or even every other day. Rather, washing your hair less frequently will help to preserve the natural oils in your scalp and keep your hair moisturized. 

People with extremely dry hair may only need to wash their hair once a week or once every other week. 

Between washes, rinsing the hair with water can keep it looking fresh without stripping it of moisture.  

Especially in the summer or after a workout, oily hair can look greasy a few hours after washing. People with oily hair may prefer to wash their hair every other day or every other day. 

The use of a sulfate shampoo can help you go longer between washes.  

Much of how often you wash your hair is determined by your personal styling preferences. Some people despise the way their hair looks or feels, even if it’s just a tad oily. Others find that their hair is easier to manage after a few days of washing. 

People with complicated hairstyles or long hair may prefer to shampoo less frequently, as less frequent shampooing means less time spent styling their hair.


There is no set number of times per week that a person should wash their hair. Expectations for how hair should look and how frequently a person should wash their hair vary by culture, age, and decade. 

The frequency with which someone washes their hair is a personal choice that is unlikely to have an impact on their overall health.
